Hi I can't find anything that can help me can I ask if anyone knows the anwser the question is - my daughter is receiving dla but has turned 16 and done her pip claim which she has been accepted for her dla was usually oaid on a Tuesday and pip on a Thursday so will my daughter's pip payment days remain the same as the dla was every 4 weeks or will the pip day change to the Thursday but continue from the 4 weeks onwards meaning the dla would cut of 2 days earlier then pip be paid on the Thursday. I'm sorry it sounds gobbledygook  but I'd be grateful for any answers 🙏

    PIP is paid every 4 weeks like DLA was. In your comment you said the PIP was going to be paid on a Thursday so the payment day has changed. First PIP payment is usually about 7 weeks after the decision was made.
    There should be one more payment of DLA and then PIP will start a few weeks later. The decision letter should tell you when you will receive the first PIP payment.

    Hello @KayCee7981

    Wishing you a warm welcome to the community, I hope you are well and enjoy getting involved here. This is a very supportive and welcoming place so I'm sure you'll fit in nicely.

    I hope the above reply has been helpful in clearing things up for you, and I just wanted to let you know that I have moved your discussion over to our PIP / DLA category, which you also might like to browse for related information.

    It's good to hear that your daughter has been successful with her transition over to PIP, and if you have any further questions then don't hesitate to ask.
